Bitburger came up with something very special for its commercial for the 2014 World Cup: As a DFB partner, the company engaged the entire national team for its advertising campaign.
Our task was to provide the opposing team and fill it with technically talented football stunt performers. In addition to procuring artists, we advised the film production company in the run-up to the shooting to ensure the planned game situations were as realistic as possible and that the cameras were able to optimally capture them.
The shooting finally took place simultaneously with the official photo shooting of the DFB national team at a secret location. During the shooting breaks, we had the opportunity to play 5-2 against national coach Jogi Löw – a unique experience for our actors.
